Hezbollah Propagandists Stealing Submariners Thunder!

Submariners can never get enough of the series of photos of HMAS Torrens getting sunk by a Mk-48 torpedo. Now, it seems that Hezbollah website operators are trying to horn in on our subpr0n. Via Ninme, the Herald Sun blog reports on a posting on an Iranian-run Hezbollah propaganda site showing one of the famous pictures and claiming it was an Israeli warship getting hit by a terrorist missile. The picture is gone from the jihadi site now, but it just goes to show you -- even idiot terrorsts are submarine wannabes.

My comment is not related to this particular post. It's purpose is to introduce you, and the world through your blogsite, to the concept of the 75-24-1 rule. This rule was developed as a guideline to make it easier to classify the CAPABLE people of the "Free World". The rule does not include those unfortunate people who were either born with or later developed incapabilities that keep them from functioning normally within society. The rule goes like this:

75% of the free world's population are pretty much un-educated lazy idiots. You can find most of them at one of their four favorite playgrounds, A)Wal-Mart B)Welfare office C)Free healthcare clinic D) state prison. They tip the scales at +300 lbs, wear the same cloths 6 to 8 times between washings(usually pink spandex pants, t-shirt with a logo, and 10 year old velcro strap tennis shoes). They wash themselves even less often. It is these 75% that the rest of us support.

24% of the population are hard working, fairly bright citizens. Most of these folks have attained some level of higher education. They contribute to the economy, support the 75 percenters, keep their homes clean and neat. These people take family vacations, play sports, work on hobbies, and pretty much follow the rules of society. These 24% do the bidding of the 1%.

The 1 percenters are those who, through natural gift, talent, or determination, have done something that created a huge impact on the 75 and 24 percenters. These are the Bill Gates and Thomas Edisons of the world. Many 24 percenters strive to be 1 percenters but know deep inside that they just don't have what it takes to get there.

As with all rules, the 75-24-1 rule has its exceptions. There are out there potential 1 percenters who through uncontrollable circumstances never hit on that idea that would make them great and move them into the sphere of the ONES. There are 1 percenters in prision, and there are many 24s who look just like 75s. These 24s shop at Wal-Mart, but in general, they pay their own way through life.

There's nothing that says things cannot change. As a group the 75 percenters contain vast potential. They are already at the bottom so can either stay there or raise themselves to the 24% group. If all 75 percenters lost weight, washed their cloths, cleaned their homes, went to work, reduced their Wal-Mart shopping sprees and/or got out of prision, they could join the 24 percenters. The rule would then be changed to the 99-1 or maybe even the 95-5 rule.

Are the 75 percenters willing to change on their own? Maybe a few. As for the majority, they like it just where they are and would need great stimulation in order to change.

In order to stimulate this change, I propose that all 75 percenters be required to have bright red cone shaped hats stitched to their scalps and wear t-shirts with a large red number 75 printed across the front and back. They could keep the pink spandex pants and velcro tennis shoes, at least for a while. These people would thus be identified to the rest of us and eventually become so embarrassed that they would do what ever it took to raise themselves to the 24s.

The cone hats and t-shirts would require an initial government investment of about 200 million dollars. This investment would be offset by the billions of dollars saved through the elimination of ALL ineffective goverment programs that currently strive to push the 75s into the class of 24.

I don't expect any 75 percenters to read and gain perspective from this comment. After all, reading is too much work for them. I do hope that the 24 percenters, and maybe a stray 1 percenter out there will read this and take up the cause.

For me, I'm a lazy good for nothing 75 percenter with no ambition to change.

You're lucky you didn't see what was flashing on the "boob tube" on public access television the other day. You wouldn't have liked this little piece of propaganda, it was nasty. If it airs again, DHS will be recieving a tape. *grin*
